Hundreds of people remained under the shadow of death for seven hours in Jalabhishek violence

Ashok Kumar Panwar, a resident of the injured Sainik Colony, who returned from the Jalabhishek Yatra in Nuh, has not been able to recover from the shock even after three days. Hundreds of women and men from Faridabad attended the event and were stranded for hours. About 15-20 people with him stayed in a Shriram temple near Nuh under the shadow of death for six-seven hours. Ashok told that the miscreants were throwing stones from the vehicles as if hail was falling. In the area of about ten kilometers, the miscreants were armed with stones and weapons. Pawar told that the Nalhar Mahadev temple is very famous and he has been going to perform Jalabhishek for three years. Every time strict arrangements are made for police security, but this time it was not so. Five other people had come with him to participate in the Jalabhishek Yatra for the first time.

Reiki was being done right from the time of entering Nuh

Ashok told that he had some cars and a bus with him. As soon as we moved ahead from Sohna, we saw that stones were kept at a distance of 500-500 meters. He told that it seemed that half the dumper stone would have been removed due to the breakdown of the vehicle, thinking that we did not pay attention. During this, about five-six bike riders chased the vehicles. They were making videos. People did not even pay attention to this and reached the temple on Monday at around 12 noon. The whole thing started to make sense after the violence happened.

Stampede caused by sudden stone pelting

Ashok told that after visiting the temple, around one o'clock they started returning back to Faridabad. A DG and 10-15 bikes were walking ahead with the vehicle and the bus was behind. After having darshan, they had walked about one kilometer from the temple when suddenly youths started throwing stones from both the sides. This caused panic in the team. The bike riders were able to escape immediately, but the car took a while to take a U-turn. During this, a stone fell on the car and broke the glass and hit his ear. It seemed that now life is not going to be saved. There was continuous stone pelting from both the sides. It seemed as if hail was falling. Wherever he got a chance, he started running away with the vehicle.

Life saved in Shriram temple

Ashok and others started running away with the vehicle. The miscreants followed them. After going about one or two kilometers, 10-15 youths were found. He said that there is danger ahead and we are Hindus. At first they could not believe it. However, after talking to him, reached Shriram temple in the village and kept waiting till 9 pm for the police to come. During this, about 15-20 people remained under the shadow of death for six-seven hours. Meanwhile, the miscreants attacked the village as well. The youths of the village chased them away. The accused had come to rob a shop. On the other hand, hundreds of people remained trapped in the Nalhad temple. People kept on knowing each other's condition through mobile. Others told that even after three days people have not recovered from this fear.
